Cosplay Realness at Comic-Con 2015

Since the Comic-Con red carpets are always basic as fuck (every starlet in a crop top, I’m looking at you), let’s take a look at the REAL Comic-Con fashion.

GO HOME, ALL OTHER CON ATTENDEES. YOU CANNOT EVEN DREAM OF DEFEATING CHEWIE’S ANGELS. JUST LOOK AT THEIR BOOTS. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS JOY.

I am fully obsessed. Also, good to know that all you need to pull off green skin is excellent muscle tone.

The Night’s King Queen, Game of Thrones

I wish she were in “come at me, crow” pose, but this is undoubtedly cool as fuck. And cold as ice. #PUNS

I have had the luxury of being up-close and personal with many Frank N. Furters of equal and better fabulousness than this darling gentleman over the years, but I understand not everyone is as privileged as I am. So, enjoy.

Furiosa, Mad Max

There were ten thousand Furiosas to choose from, but this is the only one I kind of want to date.

The eyes have it.

Queen Cersei and her “shame” Septa, Game of Thrones

Shout-out to my friend Patrick, who sent me this picture and basically demanded that I do a cosplay post. I obviously agreed, because the only thing more hilarious than dressing up as Cersei’s “shame, shame, shame *ding*” septa is having a blow-up doll play the role of Cersei.

The Mad Hatter, Alice in Wonderland

Okay, I guess any steampunk enthusiast with a few dollars in their pocket can make a Mad Hatter moment happen, but I still loved this.

I’m almost positive she was on Season 7 of Rupaul’s Drag Race. And she should have WON.

Imperator Elsa, Mad Anna, and Olaf the War Boy, Frozen/Mad Max crossover

All of my favorite non-Game of Thrones costumes involved some kind of crossover magic. These geniuses who combined Frozen and Mad Max? I’m voting for them for president.

Effie Trinket, The Hunger Games

Endless snaps for this fabulous old broad. Butterfly game on point.

The Buddy Christ, Dogma

As a Jersey kid who was practically raised on Kevin Smith movies, I laughed at this for WAY too long.

Rufio, Hook

Beyond fierce. I would be Rufio for Halloween, but, you know, I would look racist as fuck.

Mike and Sully, Monsters, Inc.

I hope you two grow up to understand that your parents are the coolest nerds in the whole goddamn universe.

Hodor and Bran, Game of Thrones

You win, sir. You WIN.

Doc Brown and Marty McFly, Back to the Future

The McFlyest family in town.

Deadpool Jafar and Deadpool Maleficent, Deadpool/Aladdin/Maleficent crossover

Honestly, anything comic-y mashed with anything Disney is a recipe for cosplay success.

A+.

Leeloo, Fifth Element

YES.

Ghostbuster Ackbar

Wow, Dan Aykroyd has aged terribly.

Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz

I don’t even know who the fuck these characters are and I still love them.

Sauron, Lord of the Rings

SLAYING.

Ahsoka Tano, Star Wars

YAAAAAAS, KWEEN.

Stormtrooper Snow White

There’s so many details to love here, but I think the bedazzled belt might be my favorite part.

Edward Scissorhands and Hedge

Flawless idea; perfectly executed. I want to carry this kid around in my pocket.

Brienne of Tarth, Jaime Lannister, Shae, and Tyrion Lannister, Game of Thrones

Photo: Melia Robinson/Business Insider

Yes, that is Brienne of Tarth and Shae, with their dogs, Jaime and Tyrion Lannister. NO ONE IN THE WORLD HAS EVER THOUGHT OF ANYTHING THIS BRILLIANT BEFORE. THIS IS DISCOVERY-OF-PENICILLIN-LEVELS OF GENIUS.

And a bonus puppy close-up, for the road:

All dogs must bark.

  1. Wait, you have never seen Wreck-it Ralph? The movie which SHOULD have gotten the Oscar for best animated movie in 2013? The Nerd movie for everyone who ever played a Computer game? Shame on you!

    Mmm…no Peggys?

      I will rectify my lack of Wreck-It Ralph ASAP!!

      There were some lovely Peggy Carters. (I assume that’s the Peggy you’re talking about – honestly, my nerd-dom is about two inches wide and fifty feet deep. I know enough details about Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and The Hunger Games to blow any super-fan’s mind, but my knowledge of comics is very limited.) But I tried to keep this post to stuff that was either 100% perfect, thought-provoking, or downright hilarious. There were so many beautiful girls dressed as Peggy, but I didn’t find one that blew my mind or separated itself from the others. (Same for Harley Quinn and Black Widow and Wonder Woman – there were TONS, and plenty of gorgeous ones, but nothing that really stuck out for me.)
